  • Reds' Luis Castillo: Hit with loss despite quality start

    Castillo (0-2) took the loss Friday as the Reds fell 2-1 to the Blue Jays, allowing two runs on seven hits over six innings. He struck out five without walking a batter.

    The right-hander put together his best performance in three outings since rejoining the Cincinnati rotation after a shoulder issue delayed his season debut, but Castillo got little support. He did get stretched out to 94 pitches (67 strikes), and he'll take a 4.60 ERA, 1.15 WHIP and 12:4 K:BB through 15.2 innings into his next start.

  • Reds' Luis Castillo: Pitches into fifth in season debut

    Castillo tossed 4.2 innings, surrendering three runs on three hits and three walks while striking out five in Monday's win over the Brewers. He did not factor into the decision.

    Making his season debut, Castillo held the Brewers off the scoreboard for the first three innings Monday. He walked two batters to open the fourth frame before Rowdy Tellez roped a two-run double. The final run on his line came on a leadoff homer by Omar Narvaez the following inning. Castillo threw 87 pitches in the outing, making it likely that he will be able to toss a full workload in his next outing. After posting a 3.98 ERA with a 9.2 K/9 in 2021, his worst outputs since 2018, the 29-year-old will look to return to form this season.

  • Reds' Luis Castillo: Activated for season debut

    Castillo (shoulder) was activated from the injured list as expected Monday ahead of his season debut against the Brewers.

    Castillo has been out all year after dealing with shoulder soreness during spring training. He's good to go now after making three rehab starts, a stretch in which he allowed one run on seven hits in 10.1 innings while striking out 16, though he also walked eight batters. He threw 4.1 frames in his most recent rehab start, so he'll likely have the chance to pitch deep enough to get a win Friday but may not be quite up to full speed.

  • Reds' Luis Castillo: Season debut coming Monday

    Castillo (shoulder) will be activated from the 10-day injured list to start Monday against the Brewers, Mark Sheldon of MLB.com reports.

    The 29-year-old made his final rehab start with Triple-A Louisville on Wednesday, and he'll remain on a five-day pitching schedule while coming off the injured list. Castillo threw 76 pitches across 4.1 frames in that outing, so any workload limitations should be minor despite it being his first start of 2022.

  • Reds' Luis Castillo: Looks set for season debut Monday

    Manager David Bell said Castillo (shoulder) is "penciled in" to return from the 10-day injured list to start in the Reds' series opener Monday against the Brewers in Cincinnati, C. Trent Rosecrans of The Athletic reports.

    Castillo will likely be confirmed to make his season debut Monday once he completes a bullpen session over the weekend. Bell's comments on the right-hander's upcoming return came shortly after Castillo dominated in his third minor-league rehab start Wednesday with Triple-A Louisville. He worked 4.1 innings and tossed 76 pitches (48 strikes) in the outing, striking out seven while giving up zero runs on three hits and two walks. Castillo should be in line for about a 90-to-100-pitch workload when he returns from the IL next week.

  • Reds' Luis Castillo: Excels in third rehab start

    Castillo (shoulder) made his third rehab start Wednesday with Triple-A Louisville, striking out seven over 4.1 scoreless innings while allowing three hits and two walks.

    Castillo tossed 48 of his 76 pitches for strikes in the start and generally steered clear of trouble during the afternoon. Given his workload and how effectively he pitched Wednesday, Castillo is likely to come off the 10-day injured list to make his next start with the Reds. He tentatively lines up to start Monday's series opener against the Brewers in Cincinnati, though it's possible the Reds extend him an extra day of rest before clearing him for his season debut.

  • Reds' Luis Castillo: Needs two more rehab starts

    Reds manager David Bell said Tuesday that Castillo (shoulder) will require two more rehab starts in the minors before returning from the 10-day injured list, Bobby Nightengale of The Cincinnati Enquirer reports.

    Castillo made his first rehab appearance Sunday with High-A Dayton, giving up an earned run on two hits and three walks while striking out four over 2.1 innings. After Castillo tossed 48 pitches in that outing, the Reds are targeting 60-to-65 pitches or four innings for him in his second rehab start, which will come Friday with Triple-A Louisville, according to Nightengale. Assuming he remains on a normal four days' rest schedule following his second and third rehab starts, Castillo would tentatively line up to make his season debut with the big club May 9 versus the Brewers in Cincinnati.

  • Reds' Luis Castillo: Modest results in rehab start

    Castillo (shoulder) tossed 2.1 innings Sunday in his rehab start for High-A Dayton, giving up one earned run on two hits and three walks while striking out four.

    Castillo needed 48 pitches to retire seven of the 11 batters he faced in his first game action at any level since spring training. He pumped in 27 of his pitches for strikes Sunday, and the Reds will likely want to see him show improved efficiency while simultaneously upping his pitch count in his next rehab start. Castillo could move up to Triple-A Louisville for that outing, which would likely be his last before he comes off the 10-day injured list and slots into the Cincinnati rotation.

  • Reds' Luis Castillo: Making rehab start Sunday

    Castillo (shoulder) is scheduled to begin a minor-league rehab assignment Sunday, C. Trent Rosecrans of The Athletic reports.

    The 29-year-old threw 35 pitches during live batting practice Tuesday, and the next step in his rehab will be pitching in minor-league games. Castillo is expected to report to Triple-A Lousiville or High-A Dayton and be limited to about 50 pitches. He'll likely require two additional rehab starts after Sunday before returning from the injured list.

  • Reds' Luis Castillo: Another live BP session planned

    Castillo (shoulder) threw 20 pitches in a live batting practice session Friday and will have another such session on Tuesday, Bobby Nightengale of The Cincinnati Enquirer reports.

    Castillo doesn't yet have a schedule set to go on a rehab assignment, but it might occur shortly after Tuesday's session if all goes well. Given that Castillo hasn't seen any game action yet, he's likely going to need multiple rehab starts before getting activated.

  • Reds' Luis Castillo: Another step toward return

    Castillo (shoulder) is scheduled to throw live batting practice Friday, C. Trent Rosecrans of The Athletic reports.

    Castillo threw a bullpen session Tuesday and responded well, so he'll now progress to the next step of his throwing program. Assuming he continues to pitch without pain, Castillo should go on a rehab assignment soon and could return by late April or early May.

  • Reds' Luis Castillo: Responds well to bullpen session

    Reds manager David Bell said that Castillo (shoulder) checked out fine after throwing a bullpen session Tuesday, C. Trent Rosecrans of The Athletic reports.

    Castillo is scheduled to throw live batting practice this weekend in Los Angeles at some point during the Reds' four-game series with the Dodgers. If all goes well, Castillo could be sent out on a brief minor-league rehab assignment thereafter. The right-hander looks on track to return from the injured list at some point in late April or early May.

  • Reds' Luis Castillo: Bullpen session coming this weekend

    Reds manager David Bell said Castillo (shoulder) will play catch Thursday and is likely to throw a bullpen session over the weekend, Mark Sheldon of MLB.com reports.

    Cincinnati officially moved Castillo to the 10-day injured list Thursday, but the right-hander doesn't look like he'll reside there for a lengthy period to open the season. Though Castillo isn't on pace to make it back on the active roster in the minimum 10 days, Bell said that the Reds are optimistic the 29-year-old will be ready to go by late April. While Castillo and Mike Minor are on the IL, top prospects Hunter Greene and Nick Lodolo will hold down spots at the back end of the rotation.

  • Reds' Luis Castillo: Officially hits injured list

    Castillo (shoulder) landed on the injured list as expected Thursday.

    The move was reported back in late March, as Castillo has been delayed by a sore shoulder throughout the spring. His absence isn't likely to be a long one, as he's expected back in mid-to-late April, though he'll be on a pitch count for his first start or two.
